Size of Real estate in Indian GDP

Real estate is among the top four pillars of the economy and is expected to reach Rs. 12,000 crores by the end of 2030 and contribute approximately 13% of the country’s GDP by 2025. This sector contributes greatly to the overall employment in the country as well. The prices of real estate are largely influenced by macroeconomic factors like the developments in a particular area, the upcoming infrastructure developmental projects, and the demand for real estate in the general.
